    To me, it sounds like it could be a fybroid tumor. Don't freak out...that doesn't mean cancer. My mom was bleeding irregularly for years. It started out like longer periods and then turned into bleeding almost constantly for months. I finally got her to see someone (most obgyn's turned her away because of no insurance and no money to pay upfront) and during an exam the tumor was found. She had to have emergency surgery; her blood levels were so low from the blood loss that she had to have a blood transfusion before they could operate. She was so swollen in her abdomen area...she looked like she was 7 months pregnant.

    have you tried calling your local health department.. some offer services based on income and they do have doctors there..I know in Lexington , Ky they have doctors and dentist and obgyns there and it can run from being free to a few dollars based on your income.. also they can put you in touch with the free clinics.. just thought >> tell you if you didnt know..

    Planned Parenthood will help you if you have one in your area. Look them up in the phone book...they only accept patients with NO insurance.

    But definitely see someone soon, OK?

    I ended up taking her to three different ER's until I finally took her to U of Michigan...they actually looked to see what was going on and her tumor by that time had prolapsed so they really couldn't turn her away. Most hospitals will assign you emergency insurance and work with you for the rest. If you go to an ER have them run your blood levels. If they are low like my moms, I don't think they will turn you away. She was so weak. Please look into getting help soon. Best of luck to you.
